Glenview House

Both locals and holidaymakers enjoy visiting Brian and Teresa Kennedy’s farm guesthouse which, unusually, not only offers good food and accommodation, but also Leitrim’s only museum.


For a token entrance fee you can revel in Glenview Folk Museum’s extraordinary private collection of over 7,000 antique, historical and novel rural artefacts, ranging from pre-famine Ireland to the recent past – well worth a detour.


In the evening, overnight guests and non-resident diners congregate in the bar before being seated at formally-laid tables in the large dining room, where Teresa's traditional 5-course dinners are served – and a piano suggests that parties have been known to happen here...


It's a great place for a family holiday as there's lots to do in the area, and there's a tennis court and outdoor play area as well as an indoor games room.


A stay here is a taste of real traditional Irish hospitality. The comfortable rooms are simple but moderately priced, with compact shower rooms, and you can be sure of a good breakfast. But it is the Kennedys themselves who make a stay here so special.
